New Children’s Laureate – Chris Riddell

SLYA_2014__1151_

Two of my reading ambassadors, who attended the SLA Award ceremony in London 2014, were very lucky to meet Chris Riddell.  He was a lovely man; happily chatting with them and signing their books and my copies for our library.  He also gave us one of his superb illustrations which takes pride of place in our library.

At the ceremony he shared his love of libraries and librarians with us. Here is one of his illustrations and a link to his love letters to librarians:
